Are there any similarities between blogging and networking?
I usually find writing blogs easier than networking. Well, that was the first reason why I started writing. I feel comfortable facing a blank page then talking to a stranger. I even give speeches in public, in fact, I love public speaking. But, if I am in a room full of strangers, I feel awkward and look for an excuse to escape.
Recently, to learn the art of networking, I started reading the book ‘The fine art of Small Talk’ by ‘Debra fine’.
While I was reading the book, I also started participating in Blogging 101 and I couldn’t help notice the similarities.
Based on the book and based on the assignments in ‘Blogging 101’ course, I found that rules to build networking skills and rules to sharpen blogging skills are almost the same. So, if we master blogging, we can learn the art of networking as well. Two birds at one shot 🙂
